33 radio recordings of RKO's The Shadow, recorded as main character by Orson Welles between 1937 and 1938 It doesn't happen that often that a cultural icon plays a \"genre\" role, and in the 1930's it probably happened even less. But before a certain well-documented Martian Invasion rocketed him to fame and a contract with RKO, a 22 year-old Orson Welles funded his theatrical productions with radio work, including a year on the Mutual Network's now-legendary \"superhero\"...

ROCKY FORTUNE In the days prior to From Here To Eternity, Frank Sinatra's popularity was waning and this private eye show was an attempt to remedy that. In it, Frank played Rocky Fortune, a "footloose and fancy-free young man," frequently unemployed, who took numerous, adventurous odd jobs. It was a relatively undistinguished series; definitely a "B grade" radio series, saved by Sinatra's charm and a tongue-in-cheek approach. Rocky Fortune appeared on NBC for only a short...

My Favorite Husband began as a radio sitcom on CBS Radio. The show starred Lucille Ball and Richard Denning as Liz and George Cooper (Liz and George Cugat in early episodes). The couple lived at 321 Bundy Drive in the ficticious city of Sheridan Falls, and were billed as "two people who live together and like it." The main sponsor was Jell-O, and an average of 3 "plugs" for Jell-O were made in each episode. The program ran from 1948 through 1951, throughout which 124...

THE WHISTLER You're walking alone on the street at night, but then you hear another set of footsteps and a haunting tune being whistled by an unseen stranger. Fritz Lang used an similar premise in his 1930s German movie with Peter Lorre playing M , a psychopathic murderer of children. But the American radio series was even creepier. The unseen Whistler didn't kill anyone (that we know of), but he certainly loved watching murders take place, narrating them for us, and chuckling at the suffering...

A short feature from 1948 in colour. A bunch of Rascal-like kids solve a mystery in the mansion on the hill. Features George Zucco. This is one of many 1948 Hal Roach films that lapsed into the public domain when the comany fell into financial difficulties in the 1970s.

One of Larry Buchanan's first films, so don't expect the polish and complex character interactions of his later work, like "Mars Needs Women" or "Zontar, the Thing from Venus."

This was one of the three films that Bob Hope did for Paramount with the theme of favorites: blonde, spy and brunette. He was at one of the best moments of his career when this spoof about the detective movie genre went into production. "My Favorite Brunette" was directed by Elliott Nugent with a style that made it fun and light to watch. The screen play by Edmund Beloin and Jack Rose parodies those films that showed a charismatic private eye get into all kinds of dangerous...

This complete print is brighter and significantly sharper than the truncated version already here at IA. Bad guys want to blow up the French fleet at Port Said. Mr. Moto would rather they didn't. Urban adventure ensues, along with a side order of comedy relief. Initially released on 20 January 1939. IMDB page: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0031678/

The Vampire Bat takes a different route from most other vampire films of its day and there is as much science in the story as their is supertition. In this film though the science is no bad thing because where there is science there is usually a scientist and scientists often need an assitant. In this film the assistant, Ruth Bertin, is played by the lovely Fay Wray who is also the love interest of the local police chief, Karl Brettschneider and when Karl's hands are not full with his...
